The Maritime Administration and Logistics program at Texas A&M University will attract dynamic and forward looking students who understand the implications of expanding regional and international trade. Some students will want to complete the thesis option, which requires preparation of a graduate thesis involving original research.
This is strongly recommended for students who intend to continue their education at the doctoral level. The non-thesis option does not preclude future work toward a doctorate but is most appropriate for students who see this graduate program as their final professional degree. Thesis students will be supervised by a graduate advisory committee that is responsible for development of their final degree plan. There is a fully online delivery option for the degree for students who wish to complete the program off campus.
Graduate programs in business typically are delivered by both full time and part-time/adjunct faculty who are active researchers and practitioners in their fields. Proximity to the Houston-Galveston port complex allows ready access to extremely well qualified faculty, to research opportunities, and to challenging and exciting professional career opportunities following graduation.
The websites of the Department of Maritime Administration and the Department of Marine Sciences contain biographical summaries of all faculty who will teach in this program and their research interests.

- The opening of the new locks of the Panama Canal will dramatically increase regional port and logistics activity and the associated need for professionals with advanced degrees. Additionally, increased energy exploration and recovery activities in the Gulf of Mexico are expected to stimulate 2-3 trillion dollars of economic investment in the coastal zone of Texas in the next few decades.
- This investment will sustain continued economic growth for the foreseeable future. The combination of these two circumstances—the general increase in world trade and the expanding energy industry in the Gulf of Mexico—will provide exciting and challenging opportunities throughout the energy, maritime and all other transportation industries.
